Flippin' Friday!



Happy Friday everyone!! I am so thankful that it is Friday, I am not sure how it is happens but sometimes the week seems so long, yet I can not get everything I want done (like blogging!).

I thought I would try something today (and other Fridays too!) and that is to share any interactive elements we used in our notebooks during the week. I am very new to the world of interactive notebooks but I know I truly appreciate when I see examples of interactive elements people have done, either on their blog or on Pinterest. So with out further ado (because seriously that was enough ado) I bring you...

Frame from Lovin Lit, Fonts from KG Fonts


As you may recall (since I mention it once a month) I have Erin's Ultimate Interactive Notebook Templates. That is what I used for all of the following activities.

1. Bossy R sounds. This is actually in my Winter Wonder R Controlled Vowels pack but is pretty easy to duplicate. I put our sample words on each flap, students colored in the vowel diagraph and then we brainstormed words to add under the flap. Students added words as the week went on to our master list.



2. 3D Solids. Okay this one is actually from before Christmas but I just started sharing so.... Anyhoo. Students wrote their learning goal (this one missed some of it!) and then under the 3D solids part we wrote what terminology we use to describe, sort and compare solids (faces, edges, vertices, congruent faces, base). Under the prism and pyramid tab we wrote what distinguishes these two types of solids (types of faces, number of congruent bases).


3. Multiplication Strategies. Inside is an example of how to use each with the same problem.



4. Parts of a Paragraph. This is the one I am most proud of - the first time I ventured into different shapes (I usually stick to the tabs). I put the parts of the paragraph on the semi-circles. Students cut the shape out and glued it down so that the words would fold over. I wrote a paragraph about paragraphs in a hexagon shape (lined it up with the template - love that this package is editable!!). Students glued that into the middle. Then we color coded the semi-circles. Then we used the color coding to code the paragraph. Woo hoo.

We followed this up with labelling our P.O.W. (paragraph of the week). I found these adorable lables at Business Depot. I ended up labelling them just to save time. After writing a final draft of their paragraph students used the labels to label their paragraphs. I am really happy with how this activity worked out - especially for those students who had an indent label left over and did not know where to put it and the other kids would say "It goes in the space you left at the beginning....oh, you didn't leave a space...".



Hope you like Flippin' Friday!!

  3. I am starting to love interactive notebooks & foldables. I have a few packs from TpT and am using bits and pieces throughout the year. I'm also doing some things on my own & I'm pretty happy with the way our notebooks are being used this year.
